FX2 Package for US-spec 2WD Ford Ranger
The Ford Ranger on its ‘T6″ platform has been around for a few years now, but the U.S. Market only got a taste of it in its current facelifted form recently.
So to spice it up for American customers, the company has released a few special editions. This FX2 Package was developed for the 2WD variant of the Ford Ranger that we also get here for under RM117,000.
Of course, this package may contain parts that don’t directly bolt on to our model, given it is a left-hand drive vehicle. But here are the photos and specifications, should you feel the need to do up your Ranger in a similar fashion.
- off-road tuned suspension
- electronic locking differential
- 17″ or 18″ wheels in off-road tyres
- underbody guard
- deletion of air dams
- pitch, roll and yaw info in the instrument cluster
- 4-pin/7-pin wiring harness
- Class IV trailer hitch receiver
- Terrain Management System with Trail Control
Here’s the official press release with more information.
Ford is introducing the new Ranger FX2 Package as another choice for customers who want off-road styling and capability in a two-wheel-drive offering.
Aimed at more urban markets, the FX2 Package rides on 17- or available 18-inch off-road tires to add even tougher styling to two-wheel-drive Ranger. A front underbody guard and air dam-delete provide even more distinction, while shielding the underbody and improving approach angles.
Adding to Ford Ranger’s two-wheel-drive capability, the FX2 Package includes an electronic-locking rear differential and off-road-tuned suspension for increased traction and performance off-road. Ford’s off-road cluster screen adds to the FX2 experience inside, where drivers can see pitch, roll and yaw in real time.
Tough looks, not tough choices
Demand for Ranger personalization options continues to increase, with two in every three buyers opting for a Sport Appearance Package, Chrome Appearance Package or STX Appearance Package, while one in every three selects the FX4 Off-Road Package. Over half of Ranger buyers are choosing the Trailer Tow Package.
Ranger offers a wide variety of packages and options, including the new Black Appearance Package with black accents and high-gloss black wheels, the Sport Appearance Package with Magnetic Gray-painted accents and unique wheels and the Chrome Appearance Package with chrome body accents and bright chrome wheels.
FX2 is the latest addition to Ranger’s capability offerings, which include the Trailer Tow Package with a 4-pin/7-pin wiring harness and Class IV trailer hitch receiver and the FX4 Off-Road Package featuring an electronic locking rear differential and Terrain Management System with Trail Control.
It all starts with Built Ford Tough
Ford Ranger answers the call of truck customers looking for an affordable, rugged and maneuverable midsize pickup that’s Built Ford Tough. Torture-tested alongside Ford F-150 trucks, Ranger quality starts with a high-strength steel frame backbone, proven Ford-built 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine and class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission. Great features like a standard 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices and an array of available dealer-installed accessories make Ranger a perfect partner for every adventure.
The FX2 Package is available for $595 (excludes taxes) and can be ordered at US dealers now, with deliveries expected in late 2019.
